Beyoncé is set to perform with Coldplay at this year’s Super Bowl 50 half-time show.
The ‘XO’ hitmaker, 34, who previously headlined the event in 2013, will join the band during their 12-minute slot at the annual championship game of the National Football League at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on February 7.
The news was announced by Pepsi – the show’s sponsor – just four weeks after the ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ hitmakers confirmed they were taking the headline slot.
However, the group – which is the first British act to take the slot since The Who in 2010 – is starting to feel the pressure as an audience of 115 million will tune in to watch the band.
Frontman Chris Martin said recently: “We get a couple of weeks off but then we’re preparing for the Super Bowl.
“It’s a huge show so there’s a lot of pressure and we’ve already started planning what we want to do.”
Meanwhile, it’s hardly surprising the four-piece – consisting of Chris, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion – are feeling the heat as they follow in the footsteps of Katy Perry who made history last year when 118 million viewers tuned in to watch her perform.
